The Legacy of Relationships

I am very lucky to be the bratty younger sibling to my naughtier and more thrill-seeking elder brother. Yet the rush of threatening to tattle on him is something I cannot express in words. Years rolled by, but we never became confidants. People often ask me if I am close to my brother, and I…

The Bliss of Books

In my experience, bibliophiles tend to have the best noses. What is the correlation, you ask? Ask anyone who reads, they’d unflinchingly tell you how much they long for and love the smell of books, new or old, worn, fresh of the press or used. But very few take the pains to see the year…

The Worn-out Chair

We all have a favorite object of desire that we refuse to abandon. A lucky pair of socks, that cozy t-shirt or a rare book, each have a story to tell. Whether a hoarder or not, you cannot deny that somethings are too hard to let go off. It may be a car, a PJ…

Cake Time

I celebrated my 34th birthday earlier this month. Cakes are usually synonymous with the big day of the year. I’m at an age where I’m at my fittest and financially more stable, I am in a zone where I can bake my own cake and eat it too. It’s time to unleash the superhero within…

Dead Beat

Life is an endless series of trainwrecks with only brief commercial-like breaks of happiness. This had been the ultimate commercial break. Which meant it was time to return to our regularly scheduled programming. ~Deadpool
